( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Since we don't see too many responses from novices to broquaint's "Perl Idioms Explained" posts, I'd like to publicly provide a viewpoint.

You can get so much from things like perldoc and the O'Reilley books on Perl. However there are some times when I am learning Perl where I find my inner voice sounding like a little kid in math class. ("When will I ever use this?"). Now don't get me wrong, since I am learning Perl voluntarily, the inner voice doesn't sound as sullen/petulant as that kid, and I know that things that I (seemingly involuntarily) think that way about will turn out to be some of the most usefull tools at my disposal, but it is things like this post that make me go back and re-read the books and documentation on Perl until I own the concepts, that make me truly learn (and love) Perl.

I'd just like to give a public thanks to broquaint, and to the excellent monks who expand on these posts, who really help me (and many others, I'm sure) along in my quest for Perl knowledge.

Off I go to re-read ch.8 in my copy of the Camel, with what you all have provided in mind...(hmmm, I've always thought I was a pretty quick learner, but the fact that I have already worn out the book, considering my level of proficiency, reminds me that nothing worthwile is easy.)

Thanks again

    [Corion]: marto: Redoing something on new infrastructure sounds fun. At least you can reuse your previous experience :)
    [marto]: I'm looking forwads to it. The video sources are dying, and they don't have the hardware to play them back (old tape formats, not just VHS + Laserdisc etc)
    [marto]: I'll be interested to see what difference in terms of file size/quality the new codecs make. I enjoy working on things like this, so that's a bonus
    [Corion]: Ah, cool! So it's not an inhouse youtube but for a wider consumption
    [marto]: last time it was IE6 clients, now they're on 11, so more scope there also, in terms of UI and playback
    [marto]: in house as in Company network, not internet connected (power stations and the corporate HQs)
    [Discipulus]: new Monsignor party! free beverages and pizza for all you monks! and a big thanks for the patience you deserved me during these years
    [marto]: congrats Discipulus
    [Discipulus]: only 4k points to sundial's level ..;=)
    [Corion]: Yay Discipulus ;)
